Mon Nov 12, 2012 PacBio Applications Workshop, GEN

PacBio application workshop

Monday November 12th, 2:00 PM – 5:30 PM
Auditorium B, Génopode Building
Université of Lausanne, Dorigny

The PacBio RS DNA sequencing instrument is a third generation sequencing system that incorporates novel, single molecule sequencing techniques and advanced analytics to produce readlengths greater than 3,000 base pairs on average with instances of over 10,000 base pairs.  Furthermore, the single molecule sequencing capability of the RS enables the identification of base modifications in native DNA.

To illustrate these features and to promote the the use of the PacBio RS sequencing service provided by the Genomic Technologies Facility, a PacBio Applications Workshop will be held in Genopode Building Auditorium B from 14h00-17h30 on Monday November 12.
